Embodying the Conversation of Everlasting Life (Part 3)
The emphasis of everlasting life is something we cannot finish as it is the contents of the scripture. One of the manners of God’s speakings (Hebrews 1:1) is the demonstration of the word.
There is a word that the Lord wants to say in every season and if spoken as it is, no man can understand it as they are majestic, very high and hidden.
Jesus spoke in parables and when asked why he spoke as such, he replied that it was given unto us to know (Mark 4:11). Scriptures are waters (Psalm 29:3) – waters of Christ, of everlasting life and waters of Eternal Life. These waters are conveyors of revelation.
“And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and I will go: peradventure the Lord will come to meet me: and whatsoever he sheweth me I will tell thee. And he went to an high place.  And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram” (Num. 24:3-4). In the parables spoken by Balaam are the words of God.
The degree of the words he carried were of the Almighty. You can tell a water that is being brought forth by the level of revelation that the water carries. We are brought by waters and can be brought from one water to another.
When a water comes, we are to look for the voice of the water because there is a voice upon every water. The voice of the water that Balaam spoke was the revelation of the Almighty or the Everlasting Father.
Moses knew what to do about the Amalekites but he did not know how to handle Balaam as a result of the level of word that he carried. An oracle of equal proportion or higher would have been required to overcome Balaam. Moses did pray to bind Balaam. It would have been impossible to locate Balaam in the spirit in that manner.
The vision of the almighty was the revelation of the Almighty. The water that carried the revelation of the Almighty must have an everlasting strength. Waters have their strengths. Balaam could fall into a trance having his eyes open, not necessarily implying that his physical eyes were open.
Peter went into a trance but did not understand the revelation. Balaam was so raised a prophet such that in a trance, he had understanding. A parable is a way to tie many things together and is a skill in the spirit. A man who has parables is a man who has waters.
Jesus was a man who had many waters. Jesus is speaking in churches with a high level of light and is also speaking in churches with genuine milk. He is also speaking in churches that are not fully established in milk.
He is a great shepherd of the sheep and knows that not everyone can be brought to still waters at once.
The still water brethren are those being led in the path of righteousness in order to receive His name. Psalm 23 is describing a man who is being led into everlasting Life. Jesus has still waters and many other waters. There are waters in the scriptures for every level of church.
The revelation that is upon a type of water will show you the manner of water. There is the living water (John 4:10). Jesus spoke of the provision of living water, however what He gave to the woman at the well was the water of the word of faith. Jesus always wants your heart to be open to His person rather than His gift.
The gospel of evangelism that preaches Jesus who died for you and took away your sins appears weak but it is a type of water. Our generation is the kind that is spoken of in Proverbs 30:11-12, which are pure in their own eyes. The sight that this generation possesses comes from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The gospel is meant to bring conviction but some have grown above the level of conviction that certain waters can bring. This is why the gospel of everlasting life is being exalted. To convict such men, the gospel of everlasting life needs to be preached.
“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb” (Revelations 22:1). This water is the closing water or epilogue which cannot be drunk if the previous waters have not been taken. It is the water of Eternal Life.
The voice upon this water is the testimony of Jesus Christ which is the spirit of prophecy. It is described as the pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal and proceeding from the Throne of God and of the Lamb.
The voice upon this water is the voice of Eternal Life and there is a day coming wherein we will hear it. Upon this water is the last voice. This water coincides with the last trump and contains the last sayings of God (Revelation 10:7).
The waters are together with spirits; that is, angels. This is why their voices are like the sound of many waters.
These voices are announcements in the spirit that the Holy Ghost echoes and the throne must have authorized. Every activity in the book of revelations was with the authority of He who sat on the throne.
When the lamb arrived on the throne, words began to be authorized which would begin to bring forth the operations of salvation.
The lamb who is sitting on the throne is actually a sacrifice. When the angels begin to sound, waters begin to spring forth. The wellspring from on high cannot visit us without the authorization of the throne. The throne is purely for salvation.
The mystery of God has a day and in it is a voice that we will hear. Colossians 2:2 speaks of the mystery of God, the mystery of the Father, and the mystery of Christ. These mysteries are found in their waters, they cannot be found outside their water.
There are waters that span the unknown, where there is an unknown tongue and where God is found within His mystery.
The kind of believers that the Lord will raise in these last days are believers that have waters. Waters are conversations – they will have all the conversations of Christ, of the Father and of Eternal Life.
“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep my faith will stand”
– Culled from “Oceans”, Hillsong 2013
Songs also come from waters. The Oceans song by Hillsongs was an inspired song. Anyone who hates mysteries cannot find God. This song was inspired. It is possible to be inspired to speak something that one does not know.
For example, Caiaphas the high priest spoke of Jesus in John 11:49-51 and he did not know. God cannot be hindered as He can choose to speak through any man, and even a donkey. God spoke through Balaam; even when his heart was not right his words were true.
Our souls are meant to be weaved to carry mysteries; that is, waters. A scribe that is well instructed in the Kingdom has both the old and the new (Matthew 13:52).
God wants to make sure that we carry waters so that whenever we speak, we do so out of many waters. It is in the mysteries that God can be found. This implies that Eternal Life is found in the mystery of God. This is what the voice of the seventh angel carried, which John was instructed to seal (Revelation 10:1-4).
Daniel was also asked to seal that which was spoken to him (Daniel 12:4). He was a man of waters whose visions were always by a waterside (Daniel 8:2,16). Simply put, water is word and the word is God.
Rivers, seas, mountains etc. all speak of someone, and essentially a life. In Daniel 8:16, the understanding of the vision was with Gabriel and he was instructed to open Daniel’s eyes to understand the vision. Sealing the words is a skill in the spirit which means to code it. It is a skill possessed by those who have many waters.
Once sealed, many will seek to understand in the last days and desire to untie what has been locked and sealed. However, it will not be open until the throne authorizes it after which the angel will sound the trumpet and the mystery of God will be finished and men will embody the conversation.
You cannot embody what you do not understand and you cannot understand what has not been brought to you. Seals are connected to thrones, they are symbols of the throne. That which is shut must be sealed.
If it is not sealed, a higher authority can open it. However if it is shut and sealed, it will take the one who sealed it to open it.
A seal is a sign of ownership. It will only take the throne to authorize men to see the things which are sealed. It will not be long before these things will begin to be seen and unveiled and the revelations of God will begin to be brought to man. It will sound in the days of the seven angels.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4). This understanding is for the time of the end. If it is not given or authorized for a man to hear, he will not hear it nor understand it no matter what he does.
The end of time is not end times but refers to men who would have journeyed to the end. Those who have journeyed with revelations and waters will be the wise who will understand. To journey with that water means to live by that water. The waters are waters of life.
Gabriel will be told to make these people (us) understand. Eternal Life is an understanding. Understanding changes you. We have been changed to different measures, these came by revelations given unto us. Change can be subtle, many would rather have loved manifestation to accompany our change. It was the operation of a still voice that turned the events around Elijah around (1 Kings 19:12).
One of the ways the Lord hides Life is to allow contradictions. These contradictions take your mind away from the deposits of life which you have come into. Paul was in a season of many waters and despite his abundant revelations he had contradictions (2 Corinthians 12:7).
The level of revelation you can access is dependent on the measure of Life that you carry. A level of life will be required to give you a push into another level of revelation. Paul had waters but needed to be pushed into a level of abundance.
As a result, contradictions were allowed to come to him so as to hide him and prevent him from being exalted. It may not have been a case of Paul exalting himself or he becoming proud, but revelation shows you or exposes you in the spirit. Spirits will fight a man differently when he carries the revelations of everlasting life, compared to a man who has Christ.
Spirits fight you to drop the things that you carry, but the Lord hides those things that you carry with contradictions. The wisdom of contradiction is to hide.
In being hidden, the revelations are being multiplied and a day will come when obedience of the revelations and conversations would have been fulfilled, then disobedience will be avenged.
Disobedience can be avenged and nothing external will be changed about you. When obedience is fulfilled, then you have deposited into your account in the spirit. The disciples kept increasing in life as they fulfilled obedience and disobedience was being judged.
In the spirit as we archive conversations and obedience in our spiritual account, we are declared victorious over spirits and angels see us as victorious (1 Timothy 3:16). Such a man may be cast down or troubled in the natural but he is a champion in the realm of the spirit. As we journey to Zion, we are being known in heaven.
Clouds of witnesses watch as we battle to ascend into realms to lay hold of what they also laid hold of (Hebrews 12:1). These witnesses are not aware of changes that occur in our natural lives but they see when we battle spirits to lay hold of conversations. When they see us they pray to God to strengthen us to keep holding on.
After we are victorious, having fulfilled the time of holding on, there is a sound of celebration. The spirits battling us will leave and saints will shout, introducing another overcomer whom they will give a place among those who have stood. In all these, one’s natural circumstances may not change.
God may allow natural things to change but it is not always an indicator of victory in the spirit. Harvest is always green in the plains of Sodom. This is simply just to attract men. The lives of men who are journeying are filled with contradictions. We often ask ‘why is my life like this’, but in reality it is a case of ‘why is your death like this’, because death is being collected from you.
We are mostly unaware when we are being declared victorious in the realm of the spirit. It can be a time of tending to the wounds of battle after which are times of refreshing (Acts 3:19). Every water that comes to us is meant to bring refreshment.
Revelations come again to strengthen the inner man so that another formidable opponent may be presented for us to fight again (Ephesians 3:16). Timothy was told to fight the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12).
The good fight of faith continues until you lay hold on eternal life. We must keep fighting till the day we lay hold on eternal life. This is the day that the mystery of God should be finished.
The good fight of faith starts with the mystery of Christ and the fight continues until you lay hold on Eternal Life. As we fight, we move from company to company, until we lay hold on Eternal Life and the warfare ceases.
“For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (Hebrews 4:10). Your works are the warfares you engage in to embody a conversation.
When you finally enter rest your warfare is accomplished. Enoch was taken by God (eternal life) physically and did not experience death (Hebrews 11:5). It was said of him that he ‘was not’ (Genesis 5:24).
He had a walk with God and he embodied conversations until he got to a point where it was written that Eternal life took him. Eternal life is waiting to take many of us.
“Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water” (John 4:10).
The living water that Jesus spoke of was everlasting life but he gave her the level of water that she could drink at that instant. At that time, she could not embody the living water, but what she took changed her and wrought a miracle in her life. How much more could the living water do if she could have taken it?
The water is a conversation. When it enters a man it becomes a well that can develop into a spring which will lift up into everlasting life (John 4:14). When the water enters a man, it becomes a lift into everlasting life. What makes it a lift is the voice upon that water. The water springs you up until it breaks into everlasting life. Revelations 22:1 speaks of another water.
A certain group of people had just come out of the great tribulation in Revelations 7 and were to be led unto the living fountains of water (Revelation 7:17). The present church that is going to be raptured will go through this and be purified.
Revelation 7 will be fulfilled upon the church and a time of great trouble will come upon all men who lie upon the earth, believers and unbelievers alike. We will be kept in the hour of great temptation (Revelations 3:10).
It is not the antichrist who will bring great tribulation. He will bring a peace that is not of God but is the wisdom of Nimrod that plans to unite all humanity. The church will withstand him and he will harm believers (Daniel 7:25-26).
After the days of tribulations, angels will be sent to the four corners of the earth to gather the saints. These are the saints in Revelation 7 which will eventually be led to the springs of living water. As we are learning these things now, we are receiving things that will keep us in those seasons as seals are being placed upon our foreheads.
Unlike other waters that are springs of waters, the water in Revelation 22:1 is a river of pure water. The throne of God and the Lamb will be the conversation at that time (Revelation 22:3) and there is a service that will be done, after which His face will be seen and the final seal will be placed.
Christ is a seal, the father is a seal and Eternal Life is a seal. Each seal is a mystery and every mystery has its waters. You have to carry the waters of each mystery to be qualified for sealing. There is a voice that we will hear that will cause the mystery of God to be fulfilled in us!
